Must read

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden is taking actions designed to protect American renters against evictions, including asking Cabinet departments to use their power to prevent evictions and states to extend or implement eviction bans, the White House said.

Biden also asked the federal Centers for Disease Control and Protection on Sunday to consider the possibility of executive action to stop evictions, it said. He raised the prospect of a new, 30-day bank focused on counties with high or substantial case rates to protect renters, the White House said.
